I used this command to see if my pc can locate my mouse;
xsetpointer -1 | grep Pointer
Extended device -1 not found
My question is did I type in the right command or is there something else I can do to locate the mouse.
I'm using a usb gateway mouse, I'm not sure if the problem is coming from my usb slots or the mouse itself.
